Today i took my car to a guy who works with peugeot cars and he tried to diagnose the problem. When the car was running pressure levels were fine. Eventually check engine light disappeared (he did not clear the code). We decided not to do anything yet and see if this error happens again.

If this error happens again, firstly we will change low pressure fuel pump and see if this helps. If not, then high pressure fuel pump.

According to this article https://www.etuners.gr/peugeot-citroen- ... icing-101/ both fuel pumps don't last long.

Currently my RCZ runs fine but i'm pretty sure i will see that error again :eusa-whistle:


Good find Nemi,

Hopefully it doesn't return. There's nowt like a returning fault to put doubt in your mind before a big drive.
Better the fault is rectified if it returns to instill that reassurance to keep you smiling.
:lol: Laugh and the whole world laughs with you.... or is that at you? :eusa-think:

Interesting reading from etuners :eusa-think: they say no issues with RCZ coils should last years??? Eh? It’s probably one of the most frequently changed failed part on the RCZ very strange. :crazy:

Is it changed (coils) out if necessity or we will try this and see if it resolved the issue?

I think when you go through old posts a lot of owners have sorted running issues out by changing the coils even when dealers haven’t identified an issue with the coils. :eusa-think:

Today i had my high pressure fuel pump replaced. Price for HPFP was 460 EUR and labour was 25 EUR (not at official Peugeot dealer of course) :eusa-shhh:

I hope this solves my engine fault - repair needed problem.

Spoke to a Peugeot mechanic yesterday and asked him how easy it was to change the HP fuel pump after one forum member recently had said he was quoted £1400 by his local pug dealership. My Man laughed and said dead easy around an hour to swap. He also said not a common problem and always on high mileage cars and usually comes up as a misfire on No 4 cylinder.

My engine started leaking oil recently :eusa-think:

Took it to peugeot dealership and they have found two issues. One is that oil cooler is leaking and second leaking spot is cylinder head plastic cover (as seen in the picture below).

Currently they are looking for a solution to fix oil cooler without changing entire unit. Maybe some gaskets need to replaced and that's all.

As for plastic cover issue, i guess i will deal with it later :?

^ Are you sure it is not just the oil cap leaking? The sealing on those sometimes goes hard and it starts to leak oil slowly on to the valve cover.

Cap looks fine. I will try to clean that cover and check if it starts leaking again. Maybe exact leak spot will be visible.

I’ve had the rocker cover gasket changed by my dealer and it’s still leaking looks like the plastic cover must warp and the only solution is to replace it. :crazy:
